    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

November 2 Remember

October and November seem to have been the bulk of this semester. During those two months, I had more tests, quizzes, assignments and projects to do than I had in September or in this new month, December. November had a little bit of study-relief, a full week off school. I spent my whole week with an amazing family in Forest Lake and learned a lot of things from them that I would not imagine I would learn in such a short space of time. Things I think might not be taught in a regular class at CSS. From playing bumper pool to making sculptures using wire, and from making clay faces and painting them ,to making pumpkin pies, from fundamentals of American football to learning how to do art projects with a just-to-see-what-comes-out-of-it attitude; it was a one-of-a-kind experience.

Learning art, painting, making sculptures and clay faces etc

Learning art, painting, making sculptures and clay faces etc This is a sculpture I made with wire on a steel frame and taped. It is still work-in-progress and I hope to finish it next time I visit and improve the features.


Below are pictures of the faces I made using oven clay and painted using a mixture of paints and watercolors. Some think these are a country bumpkin and a santa-elf, what do you think these are? (Feel free to leave your comments below!)
